Upon winning the Academy Award, she hugged her boyfriend, Alex Greenwald, before leaning down to embrace her young costar. He stood cheering as she took the stage to accept her golden statuette.

“I want to start big, because the thing that I love about moviemaking is the amount of people it takes to make it,” she began, before acknowledging the Toronto International Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival for screening the movie.
